Tinnitus has always been a frequent reason for otological consultation in the general population. Since the appearance of SAR Co-
vid-19, recent studies report that in individuals who have suffered from Covid-19, tinnitus may appear as a sequela of the mentioned
disease in some cases while in others who already suffered from it, they have worsened.
This article also shows the results of a survey carried out in my private clinic to 42 patients in January 2021 to investigate the
presence of hearing loss and tinnitus in post-covid patients and if this tinnitus was aggravated or appeared as a sequel. Finally, alter-
natives therapies are mentioned that can be useful and at last the Tinnitus Retraining Therapy with the use of hearing aids in order
to provide a better quality of life for the patient.
